Police say the foiled drug drop started when Coleman appeared before Justice Carla Swearengen-Batch on retail theft charges Tuesday afternoon.

Linneman says when Coleman used the bathroom, the drugs disappeared and Panko was arrested.

However, later, Coleman’s husband Robert Goode showed up and is accused of also trying to bring in tobacco and marijuana to give to Coleman. Goode was also arrested.

Goode and Panko are being held at the Robinson Township Police Department and are awaiting charges.

As for Coleman, officials believe that she inserted the drugs into her body and are waiting to search her for the drugs. Coleman will also likely face additional charges.
